FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Coming off the John McDonnell Invitational looking to nail down wind-legal marks, No. 1 Arkansas will spread out across the country one last time, competing at four meets this weekend before the final stretch run to the postseason.
“We have our vaulters going to Kansas Relays right up the road, we have our sprint crew going to LSU for their Gold Alumni Meet, Taylor Werner is going to go to Mt. SAC Relays to run the 10,000-meters, and then Taylor will meet the rest of the distance crew at Stanford and complete the weekend,” said head coach Lance Harter.
“It’s that time of year where traditionally we’d have people going to Baylor or some other competition but the way the meets were working out as far as quality of competition and so on, we wanted to make sure we had our people in the right place at the right time,” Harter continued.
The women’s track & field team is currently ranked No. 1 in the nation, according to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) and boast seven performances in the Top-10 of the NCAA including Taliyah Brooks – the national leader in the long jump.
No. 1 | Taliyah Brooks – Long Jump 6.78m (22’-3”) *school record
No. 2 | Taliyah Brooks – Heptathlon 5946-points
No. 2 | Lexi Jacobus – Pole Vault 4.55m (14’-11”)
No. 3 | Victoria Hoggard – Pole Vault 4.50m (14’-9”)
No. 7 | Jada Baylark – 100-meters 11.09
No. 7 | Janeek Brown – 100-meter hurdles 12.90
